City of Toronto and TTC contractors continue the project to upgrade the street and install streetcar tracks on Leslie Street this week.

(They’re building new tracks to connect the future Leslie Barns streetcar maintenance and storage facility to the tracks on Queen Street East.)

Construction crews will be working overnight from 7 p.m. tonight Sunday, December 1 until 7 a.m. tomorrow Saturday, December 2 to switch the traffic configuration on Lake Shore Boulevard East. They’ll be shifting the traffic lanes from the south to the north side of Lake Shore East.

One lane of traffic in either direction will remain open during this work. Crews will temporarily disable the traffic lights at Leslie Street and Lake Shore Boulevard East and a “paid-duty” Toronto Police Services officer will be on site to direct traffic.

After the shift has taken place, traffic will flow along two lanes of through traffic and a turn lane available in both east and west directions on Lake Shore East

Leslie Street remains closed between the north curb lane of Lake Shore East and the plaza intersection.

During the overnight work, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the street with help of the onsite paid duty officer. After the shift has occurred, the east-west crosswalk on the south side of the intersection will not be available. However, the north crossing of Lake Shore Boulevard East will again be available to pedestrians and cyclists.

The TTC continues to detour buses operating along the 83 Jones route around the construction zone.
